    Hi, I am Maria Bella from the UK. I Love to travel and wants to discover the amazing places in the world. Recently I had an amazing visit to the majestic kingdom of Africa, The magnificent Morocco with Virikson Morocco Holidays . Now I am planning to have a tour to Cambodia for exploring the wonderful cultural aspects.

  1. I really enjoy the warmer months when I don't have to wear tights but now the Autumn is upon us it is time to cover up the legs.

    I am quite a warm person at the best of times so I do not look forward to wearing tights. You wrap up in the mornings only to find that by the afternoon the weather has warmed up and I long to get home to take them off.

    Last year I thought about holdups so bought a couple of pairs to give them a go.

    I am nearly 6 foot tall and so struggled to find a pair long enough. They end up just past my knees which is not a good look at all. Also with the "rubber" part gripping your legs they are quite uncomfortable.

    I have found they are either like boa constrictors with a vice like grip or I end up looking like Nora Batty when they slip down your legs and end up all wrinkly.

    I will have to have a look around and see if I can find a longer pair without a vice like grip.

    What us ladies have to suffer although it could be worse - just don't mention stockings

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well I did try out some hold-ups for a while. Day one I put my toe through the end of one and laddered it. A couple of days later I managed to get a ladder on the heel and a few days after that I noticed I had another ladder. What happened to run-resist ones?

    I finally gave up the ghost when I had a bad rash just above the knee due to the rubbery tops, it could have been worse and it could have been my thigh, but they didn't stretch much past my knees.

    All in all I have given up and gone back to tights.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    I thought I would give the hold-ups another go as I laddered the only pair of tights I had.

    This time I bought some extra large ones, being tall, and these came up my leg a bit further and nearly reached where they should have.

    The only problem I have now is that the tops are rolling down and stick to each other which has caused a few problems :icon_biggrin: If you see me walking "funny" you will know why

  2. Back in the late 40's and early 50's I was Captain of Gloucester Albion Hockey Team. I wonder if anyone remembers me (I went by Shirley Sylvester in those days). My Dad played for the Gloucester Gas Company Hockey Team and several times I was called on to fill in for someone who couldn't make it. We were a mixed team and had girls from Ribston, Denmark Road and Central, along with boys from the Crypt School and Thomas Rich's. Even though I say it myself we were pretty good.

    I can remember one game when we played Gloucester Gas Company and I had to forget my Dad was playing on their team. I was centre half and he was left wing. He had played professional rugby in his youth and was still very fit. I only know the match ended in a draw!!

    Dad played cricket for Gloucester XI and I eventually became their scorer, having been taken to cricket matches since I was a baby. It was just a natural thing for me to follow every game that was played, even though we didn't travel too far (I think the longest trip we made was to Bournemouth) and I look back on those days with such pleasure.

    I am really enjoying the photographs of "old" Gloucester as I didn't leave the country until 1955 when I went to the U.S. I then spent three years in Germany before returning to Gloucester for a visit before going back to the U.S. I made my home in Colorado which was a beautiful State but I always longed for the Cotswolds and "home" so after 20 years being an exile I came back home but finished up in Cheltenham, which as you know is only a hop, skip and jump from Gloucester. I must say I was shocked to see what had been done to the city when I came for a 3 month holiday in 1968. Gone was the "Market House" one of our favourite pubs, but the Double Gloucester was still there although changed from when we used to frequent it. And no more Plaza, Hippodrome or Empire (we called that the Flea Pit) and the Picturedrome was where my friend Eileen and I stood in a queue for four hours (straight from school) to see "Gone With The Wind" Then we could only get standing room at the back! What a long film that was and a long wait to get in but in the end it was worth it.

    I have many other memories of Gloucester and when I came back briefly in 1972 I got a job at Debenham's which I had always known as Bon Marche. I was in Public Relations and had a lovely time because the staff were all so great. My boss Tom Herbert was in charge of the Debenhams Choir and I went along to all the concerts to help out. What fun we had, especially when we visited Coney Hill Hospital and one of the patients held my hand and wouldn't let go for the entire concert.

    She was lovely and such a shame that she was stuck in that place.

    I have so many other things I could say about my life in Gloucester, including falling into the fountain in Gloucester Park (it had goldfish in there in those days) and as I was only four years old, my "big" brother Geoff, dragged me home and my mother was so upset as he had left me at the bottom of our road and said that I had fallen in the pond.....she thought he had left me there and he got a good hiding and sent to his room when I came into the house dripping wet and crying that "my socks have sunk" and ever that the family joke was that "your socks have sunk" and I can remember how the socks had slipped down under my feet and made my walk home very uncomfortable.

  3. Cotswold towns do not lend themselves to pushchairs; they are filled with picturesque windy paths, cobbled streets and boutiques with narrow doorways and several sets of steps. Since the twins arrived and I was forced to forgo my lightweight Maclaren for a monster triple I have got to know my limitations, and there are several well-worn circuitous paths we follow through town. We can never visit the butcher, for example, or the rather nice delicatessen. We can get in the doctor's, but not the dentist. We can get through the first set of doors at the community centre, but not the second. Out of the half dozen or so places to have tea in town, only one can accommodate us (wide doors, three highchairs, toilet on the ground floor). We are such regulars in this cafe as a result that the manager has not only given us a loyalty card, but recently sought our advice on his new colour scheme.

    It’s half past ten and the pygmies are getting fidgety. We’ve already been in the five shops in town we can fit into and I search blindly for inspiration. WHSmith is always a good bet; my children and I spend a disproportionate amount of time browsing their shelves. They have big double doors, wide aisles, they're open on a Sunday, and they sell a reassuring amount of chocolate. It is in fact surprising to discover just how much you can spend in WHSmith, when it's the only store you can easily access. If they'd just branch out into Tampax, I probably wouldn't ever need to go anywhere else. I eye up the door of the new charity shop and calculate we can just fit in. I’m always meaning to start shopping in second-hand shops instead of on-line at Boden. I’m forever reading about the designer bargains to be had in Sue Ryder shops, it’s become really quite cool. Perhaps I’ll start wearing uber-chic vintage dresses over skinny jeans, and be The One People Talk About. Actually, last year I did briefly become The One People Talked About, but that was because the phone had rung while I was putting on my make-up and I’d gone to Bumps & Babes with only one side of my face done; a sort of suburban parody of A Clockwork Orange. My new rock-chick image firmly in mind, I ram the buggy up the steps and through the door-way. And keep ramming.

    “Excuse me, madam, I don’t think it will fit”. The volunteer is in her seventies and rather nervous looking. “It’s fine” I say, breezily, “I’m an expert buggy-handler”. Slightly out of breath, I tug one side of the buggy, which seems to have got caught on the door frame. I’m going to need to back out and try again. I confidently lean back on the handles – it won’t budge. We are wedged in the doorway. Two women join the shop assistant peering anxiously over the children, who are somewhat bemused. “Er, we were actually just on our way out” one of them stutters, as I glance behind me to find a queue of people trying to get in. I mean, for goodness sake, since when did the British Heart Foundation become a shopping Mecca? Surely they can’t all be after the uber-cool rock chick look? Not that man in the stained cardigan, anyway.

    Fifteen minutes later, thanks to the helpful man at the fridge repair shop, the would-be charity shoppers and several people from a nearby bus queue, the door is removed from its hinges and my buggy freed. I’m desperate to get away from the throng of enquiring shoppers but feel obliged to actually buy something, leaving with twenty quid’s worth of second-hand crap that I didn’t want any more than its previous owners. Oh well, the uber-cool rock chick look was never really me…

    Hello

    My name is David Ochiltree. I have lived in Churchdown with my wife Jane for about 25 years now. I love it here! I draw and paint a bit and run an adult art class at the St Andrews Church Centre. I am on the lookout for new members. I do my best to make the classes an interesting and enjoyable two and a half hours each Wednesday afternoon. I am passionate about all the arts (sorry...) and I believe that art should be a source of happiness. Teaching is the most challenging thing I have ever attempted. Seem to get away with it though...lol.

    Maybe I will see you there.

    Yours

    David.

    Gloucester Quays is looking very positive but the closure of Llanthony road during the construction, has had a terrible impact upon the already struggling National Waterways Museum, Gloucester Docks, which is now in real danger.

    It's opening hours have been severely restricted and there have been comments and speculation in the Citizen regarding a possible change of name, which in turn has led to rumours that the museum could be stripped of its national title. The real implications were this to happen, are that unless there is a significant upturn in visitor numbers, the museum will struggle and eventually will have to close.

    Gloucester has lost one museum from the docks, the Robert Opie Museum of Packaging, we cannot lose another and definitely not a museum which portrays the pivotal role Gloucestrians played throughout the Industrial Revolution, through Victoria's reign and well into the twentieth century.

    I was given the opportunity yesterday to look around the new Gloucester Quays and the Designer Outlets and boy was I impressed. This is something that Gloucester really needs and I am looking forward with lots of exitement to the opening. As well as this the Gloucester Antiques Centre is also moving there and SoapCense is taking one of the shops within the Antiques Centre, so this is double excitement for me.

    More later as things progress.

    Catch you all later.

    Bye.

    Windy today with 30 second burst of sun now and then. Spring has lazily arrived.

    I didn't go cycling this weekend as I spent Mother's day with my daughter and several dozen other kids out at the school on Sunday. It's school play again, no free time for anyone. :-) I volunteered to do make-up, but wound up with gobs of goo on my hands and rubbing it into half the guys hair instead. I have to admit, it was fun playing with their hair, maybe I've missed my calling? :-D (for those of you with your mind in the gutter, take this moment to pick it now up please) I am also photographing the show for the Director and having great fun doing that as well. So far I've taken 178 pictures and the show hasn't even started yet! It begins tonight and I hope to sneak in a few more shots over the next few nights. Last night I took a dozen or so of the pics and edited them in Photoshop. I love doing that. :-) Maybe I'll take all the photographs and throw them up on a website to share with the other mothers. They liked it when I did that with the last play. :-)

    It has just begun to rain, and the wind is quite rough. I don't think I'll get any gardening done today...again. :-( Poor garden.

    Today the boyfriend has let me borrow his pride and joy. His 3.0l twin turbo toyota supra with alloys and big fat exhaust that makes it sound like a bus... (did I say that???)I was allowed to drive it on the condition that I didn't drive through Randwick (roads too narrow! TUT I used to drive a VW Camper van down those lanes on a daily basis!!) OR go over speed bumps too quickly as its suspension is very low.I did manage to get to Tetbury in one piece. I may be the world's most careful driver angels but the moment you get into someone else's car you think something terrible is going to happen. Mind you, its a lot worse when he's sat in the passenger seat next to me!!With that strained silence although he usually has a comment to make about me driving it too slowly..!!Which is probably why, when I got put on his insurance last week, his premiums went DOWN. nahgnah
